Marching to the beat of an altogether different drummer…

I am, as you may or may not be aware, a drummer. I am different from many drummers, inasmuch as I can count higher than 4, and in fact not only can I read music, I can read English. But I am not wholly different, and as such the greatest of my drumming heroes is not Steve Smith or Dave Weckl or even John ‘Bonzo’ Bonham: it is, as is the case with almost all drummers, Animal.

With that in mind, here are five of the best ‘Animal’ moments. He doesn’t even have to drum in all of them.

#5: Animal ‘negotiates’ with Dudley Moore

#4: Animal’s Drum Battle with Buddy Rich

#3: Animal sings ‘Danny Boy’

#2: Animal Achieves Transcendence

And now, folks, the single finest moment Animal ever enjoyed on the muppets, in which he met ‘his kind of woman’ (and mine too, if it comes to that), Rita Moreno…

#1: Animal plays ‘Fever’

Your Zen for today:
